of debate preparation. he knows his performance could blunt romney's move in the polls. the stage is being set in new york. the ring, if you will, for the next debate round. >> i think the stakes are enormous, particularly for the president. >> reporter: round one went to romney. the second round, biden got obama back in the fight, even if his overall debate with ryan was a draw. now, with round three just days away, this morning the candidates are in their corners. mitt romney in boston. the president in williamsburg, virginia taking three days off the campaign trail, not for golf, but debate practice. that's because after his first debate, the president watched the polls tighten in key battleground states with romney even moving ahead in virginia in one poll. >> how are you? >> reporter: team obama tells us the president will go after romney on his tax cut plans and his ideas for winding down the war in afghanistan. but in tuesday's debate, it will be audience members who will be asking the questions in the town hall format. >> he's got to be able to go on offense without being offensive

for mitt romney in those national polls, the daily tracking national polls. he's definitely picked up. also has a lot more excitement with his crowds right now, and it seems like it's re-energized his campaign but what i'll watch are those polls in the key battleground states, places like ohio, virginia, florida, colorado. those have to start closing up for mitt romney, as well. so far they haven't, in fact, there is a new poll out this morning coming out of the university of denver showing barack obama maintains a four-point lead in colorado. >> and it is the battleground states where this race will be won. and lost. >> absolutely. >> very quickly, vice presidential race. any precedent for a vice presidential debate impacting the trajectory of a race? >> not -- probably one of the most serious debate moments ever is that debate moment where lloyd bentson took on dan quayle and said "you're no jack kennedy," but in the end george h.w. bush still won that race. >> george stephanopoulos, thank you very much. great to see you here on the set this morning. george has a big show this morning fea

everything to do with why he's been doing well in the polls. this is a catch-22 for conservatives, right? mitt romney had to run as a severe conservative to get the nomination. now, he's trying to tack back to the center. and guess what? it works in the polls. centrist voters, swing voters, are looking for a candidate that doesn't have the ideological experience. it comes back to mitt romney as a flip-flopper. someone who is expedient when it comes to policy to create a short-term political goal. it hasn't been exploited by the campaign yet. this is what he said before. this is what he said now. which time was he telling the truth? >> we'll see tuesday night. >> in your opinion, who stands to benefit more from a town hall format? >> the president draws off crowds. this will be good for him. nondomestic issues, social issues, that puts mitt romney in a tricky spot reaching towards the center. >> tuesday night, we'll have the debate at 9:00 eastern. >>> and tomorrow on "this week," you'll hear from rob portman and beau biden. >>> we're going to turn to "operation dotcom," the police sting
